Speculation about Daniel Radcliffe having an undisclosed role in the Deadpool & Wolverine movie has arisen following fan observations of what appears to be the Wolverine’s Patch persona from the comic books in the trailer.

The much-awaited preview of the third installment in the Deadpool film series debuted at the Super Bowl, garnering a rapid influx of views. Dedicated Marvel enthusiasts have meticulously examined the footage for hidden Easter eggs and overlooked details, with a fleeting moment that could easily be overlooked becoming a popular point of discussion.

Daniel Radcliffe Casting Speculation in Deadpool & Wolverine Trailer

At the 1:20 mark in the trailer, viewers saw a character resembling the iconic comic book figure. Many speculate that the eyepatch-wearing rogue Patch, also known as Wolverine, appears in the film. Although not officially confirmed, the character’s back view strongly resembles Wolverine, complete with his signature white suit.

In Marvel comics, Patch is the alias adopted by Wolverine. Logan uses it when he goes deep into the criminal underworld of Madripoor to fight villains like Silver Samurai. In addition to wearing an eye patch, the disguise allows him to move through the seedy streets unnoticed. This gives him access to places he would not otherwise be able to infiltrate.

Marvel may have filmed the brief shot that appears in the Deadpool and Wolverine trailer in Madrid. This is consistent with the MCU’s portrayal of the island nation in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. In addition, fans have speculated on the actor behind the character of Patch and, according to fans, Daniel Radcliffe is the leading candidate.

“My thoughts: this is Patch(of course) but not what you think. Remember in She-Hulk there was an article talking about a man with claws? And how Phase 4 introduced Madripoor? This is the original MCU’s Logan. Not the one from Fox. And he’ll be played by someone else, not Jackman.”

Despite persistent rumors connecting Daniel Radcliffe to the role of Wolverine, the actor has consistently refuted these claims. In 2022, Radcliffe expressed reluctance to commit to a long-term role. However, industry insider Daniel Richtman countered this by asserting that Radcliffe had indeed secured an undisclosed role in Deadpool & Wolverine.

While speculation continues about the identity of the character known as Patch in the Deadpool & Wolverine trailer, it seems unlikely that Hugh Jackman is reprising the role. Fan-casting suggestions include Daniel Radcliffe, Taron Egerton, and Karl Urban. Hopefully, Patch’s true identity will remain a mystery until Marvel releases the film on July 26 as part of Phase 5 of the MCU.
